Description Jason Haar 2004-03-22 01:59:33 UTC
Version:            (using KDE KDE 3.2.1)
Installed from:    RedHat RPMs
OS:          Linux

I have been using my own dir tree of objects via a "Quick browser" hanging off the Taskbar for over a year now - basically all the of KDE-v2* releases.

Now that I've upgraded from KDE 3.1.2 to 3.2.1, I find that my old Quick Browser tree doesn't work as well as it used to. All the objects still work, it's just that I find that quite often (5-10 times a day!) I click on the folder on my Taskbar, the initial menu pops up, and I can't click on anything. At that stage I have to either hit ESC a bunch of times - or try to move focus to another app,etc to free up the Quick Browser again. Then I let it disappear and try again. Normally the 2nd or 3rd time later it works as expected.

My Quick Browser list is just a directory full of shortcuts to slogin sessions in xterms - nothing fancy. They do work fine normally, but these "glitches" occur which ruin the experience. I have some subdirs to group the sessions accordingly (Quick Browser kicks ass as a concept!), but basically it's subdirs plus some slogin sessions...

I use "Focus follows mouse", but this is under the KDE Fedora RPM release I got off kde.org. I wonder if the changes made to KDE to do double-click and the like (i.e. the "Redhatifying" of KDE) may be responsible for this bug?
